Andrew didn’t have work yesterday so I was able to make it out to the Runner’s Corner workout!
They did a 3 mile workout where you repeat 1 minute ON followed by a 1 minute FLOAT (not a jog but not all out). The hardest part of this workout is that you are constantly switching gears. We did a ton of workouts like this gearing up for our races in 2019 so I know they work really well for me as I try to get stronger.
We did these with a good amount of downhill in them which helps my legs to learn how to turnover faster. The group is doing short workouts for the next little while until they gear up again for races (if those happen!!) in the summer/fall so it is kind of the perfect time for me to be joining them again. I didn’t go all out to make sure I don’t get injured but I put in a good effort!
7.12 miles total in the Boston Launch from 2019… I love it when shoes have good memories tied to them. PS running has not been effecting my milk supply so far and I’ve decided I will back off with my running if it starts to! As of right now I am very happy with how breastfeeding is going with Beck (<— he makes it SO easy).
It sure is hard to get out of bed on winter mornings but it is always worth it.
Beck and Skye both had a doctor’s appointment so that was the big event for the day.
And Beck slept even more than usual because he had to get shots.
Oh and the other big event of the day was free pizza via my sister’s coupons. She always has the best deals.
Now for a few things to talk about…
*It’s my sister’s birthday today. She doesn’t take birthdays as seriously as I do so I’m going to force her into taking it seriously today and make her party with me:) Flashback photo of us from 30 years ago:)
*My mom figured out why I am so into the Princess Diana story… She is my mom’s ELEVENTH cousin. It all makes sense now.
*My sister-in-law has 5 kids and they just found out that they will be going back to virtual learning… She shared with me her coping mechanisms and they are the same as mine.
*Knox checks the coop at least 3 times a day for eggs. PS did I tell you that we did end up having a rooster?! Luckily, we found a farm close by that took him and said we can visit Ducky (<—Knox named this chicken) whenever we want.
*My Garmin has been acting crazy on a few of my runs lately! Mid-run it will just start slowing down my pace and then I’ll speed up to test it and it will say I’m running even slower. It will then show up like this afterwards… yep, definitely did not run through anybody’s yard/house during my run ha.
*This last Saturday Andrew found out that it was the last day that my favorite cookies were going to be sold… So he went and bought 18 of them and froze them for me. He wins.
Do you make birthdays a big deal or not so much?
Who else has a January birthday? Anybody have a race in January?
Do you prefer the short and super fast intervals or the longer medium fast type intervals when it comes to speed work?
Those of you that have breastfed while training, did it effect your milk supply at all?
